Any ideas on what these fish might be?

I bought some aqautic plants and put them in an empty tank. I only had two dwarf aquatic frogs in it for about a week. Now about three weeks after purchasing the plants I noticed I had some fry. At first I thought maybe they were tadpoles, but I did some research and now I highly doubt it. The fish are roughly 2 weeks old now.


Any ideas on what they could be?

I am going to say a guppy (or possibly another type of livebeared) since many pet stores put gravid (is that what you say with fish?) females in with the live plants.

They are 100% from eggs cuz the fish weren't there when I first got the plants. Oh and this is at the pet store that I own, so these plants are from a wholesaler. Not sure what they keep in with them. I bought 20 different species of plants.
